Hey Thanks again..

As per Verbal Thursdays with Ron is a great resource, especially the session on Modifiers and After OG 10 I do feel practice is the key for SC

As per Quant I am still hunting for the right resource for 700 plus.. Someone suggested Kaplan 800 but honestly It does no good, Also We cant reset the MGMAT CATS, I would be covering the Q pool there later for Maths once I am done with all 6, also there are OLD GMAT Paper sets available, only issue is I dont have the explanatory answer sets so these are the things I have in Mind..

Swapna,

I find Quant/Verbal Review guides tougher than OG Review. I would suggest (this may not be the best advice) going over the areas, in both Quant and Verbal, that you find slightly tough for maybe the next 5 - 6 days. Beyond that, I'd say stick to the skills you have built up and just practice. Don't try and cram up any study a week prior to the exam. This is the advice I have gotten from friends etc. Maybe attempt a number of tests before your exam so I'd say maybe 5 -6 over the next 2 weeks. Make sure to attempt the AWA sections as well. Leave the GMAT Prep tests for the last few days. Work through Manhattan's CATs exams as they give you good explanations.

What else have you been doing to brush up on your Quant? My verbal score is appaulling and I really wish to pull that up to around 35.

Does anyone else have any advice for the last 2 weeks??

If you only have two weeks: your most bang for your buck is to work with a great tutor. Someone with experience and expertise on the GMAT is going to make ALL the information accessible and hone in your needs.

If you've been doing mostly self study and hit a wall, this is the most optimistic thing you can do to blast through the wall...Consider it a good business decision and a great investment.

Also: bag the panic mode. That is the WORST thing you can do. Acknowledge you're where you're at because of the choices you've made, that you're in control and in command...otherwise, your score can majorly suffer (we've seen scores go up 230 points by just eliminating the anxiety factor)...

Good Luck!
